Positive Reviews

Perfectly positioned

Best Western Beachside Inn is situated right on the beach, which is very convenient. It is also really close to the pier and to a number of bars, restaurants and stores. There is a town center shuttle bus stop just outside the hotel and getting to the train station is easy as well.

Great customer care

The staff here are really friendly and helpful. They act in a pleasingly courteous and professional manner. They will go out of their way to make sure your stay is just right and will deal with any problems you may have without any fuss.

Room with a view

You'll get a great vista from your guestrooms. Whether you are looking out onto the park or across to the harbor, it's a beautiful site and a nice thing to wake up to in the morning.

Negative Reviews

Not the quietest

Your stay might be disturbed by a few sounds, from both inside and outside the hotel. You might be disturbed by the noise of footsteps on the wooden floorboards upstairs. The walls are quite thin as well, meaning that you'll hear what your neighbors are up to in the next room. If your guestrooms is facing the road, you'll certainly hear the traffic as well.

A disappointing start to the day

The breakfast at Best Western Beachside Inn isn't worth getting up for. It doesn't taste especially fresh and the selection of items isn't amazing. Also, the room in which it is served is quite small and cramped.

The internet doesn't stretch

While the Wi-Fi at this hotel is free, the connectivity isn't the best. The signal might not reach your guestroom and you may find that it drops out at frustratingly regular intervals.
